Tungsten Hexafluoride, WF6

Tungsten Hexafluoride, WF6, is obtained by the action of anhydrous hydrogen fluoride upon tungsten hexachloride in platinum vessels, or by the interaction of antimony pentafluoride with the hexachloride. It is a solid at low temperatures; just above 0° C. it sublimes to a heavy gas which fumes in moist air; it reacts with water with production of tungstic acid. It attacks both glass and mercury; by alkalies it is decomposed, and with alkali fluorides it forms double salts.
